Antique Chinese 16" Gold Inlaid Bronze Vessel
Item Details
Description
Old Chinese bronze handled and footed urn or vase, with tin insert. Likely Qing era. Gold and possibly silver inlay -- there is some inlay around the shoulder that has some tarnish obscuring it, and we do not want to polish it at all. The gold is NOT gold plating, gold wash or gold paint, but real, solid gold. Took tiny rub from inconspicuous spot of the inlay (which will never be detected, partly because it was gold underneath the rub), and it tested to be at least 18k purity. Measures about 15-3/4" high and is quite heavy.
Condition
The cost of packing this item and shipping via UPS or USPS may be significant due to labor, materials and dimensional weight -- you may want to contact us for a quote prior to auction day to avoid surprises.
